Jane Campbell

“In our minds we set independent living up thinking this would not be a pilot for very long, that it would become a choice, it would be what was on the menu of what was offered to disabled people.”

Baroness Jane Campbell DBE is a member of the House of Lords and a senior figure in the disability rights movement. Determined that living independently in the community as a disabled person was achievable, Jane worked with Ann Macfarlane to propose and pilot an independent living scheme in Kingston in the early 1990s, paving the way for direct payments for people in the Borough.
